CISSP/SSCP: Benefits

Information security professionals invest substantially in information assets, including technology, architecture and process. But how can protection of these assets be ensured? Only through the strengths of the professionals in charge. Industry standards, ethics and certification of IS professionals and practitioners becomes critical to ensuring a higher standard for security is achieved.
